Restoring a Hyper-V Full VM to a different host fails
Updated over a week ago

Problem description

Restoring a Hyper-V virtual machine to a different host fails with the Memory virtual quantity above maximum (Error code 11) error.


This issue is observed when the target host does not support the number of CPUs or the amount of memory assigned to the original VM.


While the Full VM restore fails, the Hyper-V virtual machines disks are successfully restored. Therefore, to restore the VM:

  1. Perform a disk restore

  2. Create a new virtual machine in the Hyper-V manager

  3. Attach the restored disk(s) to the new VM
